15 Hilarious Halloween Costumes for Dogs
by Jessi Larson
Halloween is fast approaching, but don’t fret – there’s still time to find an awesome costume for your dog.
Dressing your dog up is humorous no matter what, but it’s even better when you pick a funny, entertaining outfit.
We scoured the internet and found the 15 most hilarious Halloween costumes out there. Get ready to ROFL.
Dumb and Dumber Tuxedo
Oh my gosh, you guys, this is a thing! Remember the 1994 classic comedy Dumb and Dumber and the epic scene where Harry and Lloyd dress up in matching tuxedos for the ball? They actually have these costumes for dogs!
If you have two dogs, how much fun would it be to dress them up like this? Or, you could find a friend with a pup and pair them together.
Carrying Pumpkin Costume
This unique costume is cute, cuddly and funny all at once. It looks like your dog is doing some heavy pumpkin lifting, but that’s the beauty of the mind-bending design.
Another bonus: It’s nice and warm for dogs who are freeze furbabies.
Madonna Blonde Ambition Outfit
It’s so wrong, it may just be right. If you’re like us, you haven’t thought about Madonna and the cone bra for years. But now that you see it in dog form, it may be time to resurrect this iconic look. This costume is likely to shock and delight.
UPS Dog Uniform
Who thinks these things up? We would never have thought to put our dog in a UPS uniform. But when you see it, it feels so right. This costume is a good option for dogs who don’t want something covering their entire body. As you can see, it only goes around their neck and front legs.
Puppy Pirate Costume
Arrrrrr you looking for an adorable dog costume that’s also funny? This puppy pirate outfit could do the trick. Like a few of the other costumes noted above, this one makes it look like your dog is walking on two legs, which is always hilarious. And then there’s the hook hand. We can’t get enough.
Hawaiian Hula Dog
This costume is goofy and slightly inappropriate. But on the plus side, it’s guaranteed to get laughs and, thinking practically, there’s not that much material to it, which means your dog is more likely to keep it on throughout the night.
There aren’t many costumes we found that are hilarious and tough all at once, but this one fit the bill. Created by Animal Planet, the raptor costume is cute and entertaining.
If you have a sweet little dog, how much fun would it be to dress them up as a fierce predator? The juxtaposition is magic.
Hot diggity, this is a cute costume. We love the straightforward simplicity of this get-up. It’s goofy and lots of fun.
Um, how awesome is this costume? There’s something that just brings a smile to your face when looking at this outfit. So fun, so silly, so right.
We cannot get enough of this costume. Waldo is such an iconic character, and this does a great job of translating the look into a perfect costume for canines.
Bonus: How much fun would it be to dress up as Wenda to complement your dog’s look?
For many of us, fancy coffee drinks are a major addiction. This costume celebrates the love of lattes in a perfect pup-sized costume.
Shark Pet Costume
Be honest, you smiled and maybe even laughed when you saw this? It totally looks like a shark is taking a bit out of the cute little dog. Don’t worry, your dog will be perfectly safe in this shark-tastic costume.
Skunk ‘lil Stinker
It’s Pepe Le Pup! Your dog will be the life of the party in this fun, odor-free costume. The design is also warm for those cold autumn nights.
Sushi Pet Costume
This. Is. Amazing. If you’re looking for a unique costume that is entertaining and hilarious, look no further.
Squirrel Pet Costume
And last, but certainly not least, is this goofy squirrel outfit. Dogs love to chase squirrels but never seem to make much progress, so if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, as they say.
As responsible dog owners, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t add a disclaimer note. No matter how fun the costume, if your dog isn’t having it – because they don’t like wearing clothes, it scares them, whatever the reason – don’t force it.
But, if your dog doesn’t mind dressing up and you have a killer costume, spread the laughs!
